Our Favorite Mystery Blogs

01 Jul 2015

Mysteries have such a history: Sherlock Holmes has been a beloved detective for over a hundred years, and Agatha Christie is still so popular that a new BBC series is based off two of her novels. And we can’t forget about JK Rowling’s (ahem, Robert Galbraith’s) Cormoran Strike series that initially caught everyone by surprise. This week, we bring you bloggers who write about one of the most popular genres—mystery!


Jen’s Book Thoughts

Jen’s Book Thoughts is a bit of a red herring—her blog theme may be pink, but she mostly reviews darker mysteries, including suspense and thriller. You’ll find the occasional biography or literary fiction, but Jen’s Book Thoughts focuses much of its reviews on mysteries.



Crimepieces is a book review blog written by a crime fiction writer, and she reviews a lot of European fiction, with an emphasis on Scandinavian (if you haven’t read The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest, start right this second). It’s always great to see what other authors are reading in the genre they also write, and Crime Pieces is perfect for readers who love crime and thriller fiction.

Crime Fiction Lover

Crime Fiction Lover claims to be the “site for die hard crime and thriller fans,” and you best believe it! Crime Fiction Lover was started by two journalists who love crime fiction, and today they have reviewers from the US and Europe covering new mystery, thriller, and crime novels.


Mysteries & My Musings

Reviewing cozy, thriller, amateur sleuth, paranormal, and historical, Mysteries & My Musings is a blog that doesn’t discriminate: they’ll review almost any sub-genre of mystery. The blog also features author interviews and games.
